The current plan has been submitted for 2014 Master-plan, and approved The master-plan 2017 of Science Council of Japan is a minor revision, and therefore the proposal of ‘Frontier of Polar Science’ for 2017 is based on the proposal in 2014.

We also would like to continue the discussion for revising our plan for Master-plan 2020, which is expected to be a significant revision.
